  The Apple Macintosh computer - price and description

Apple iMac

The Apple iMac (Rev. A & B), based on the Columbus architecture, features a 233 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 32 MB of RAM, a 4.0 GB hard drive, and ATI Rage IIc (Rage Pro Turbo after October 26, 1998) graphics acceleration in a "bondi blue" and "ice" colored, space-age, all-in-one case with a crystal-clear 15" color screen. The iMac is unique not only for its look, but also for being the first Mac to include USB ports, a new standard from the Wintel world which supports up-to 127 devices, and for lacking a floppy drive, PCI slots, and a SCSI port.
